      Hello! Looking for info on 2 inherited revolvers.

      Unfortunately, my grandfather passed away last month unexpectedly. My grandmother made me aware of some firearms he owned that she was not comfortable keeping any longer. I visited yesterday and drove home with 2 revolvers and 2 rifles.

      The first revolver is a High Standard Sentinel R-101. It is a 9 shot .22 cal revolver with a plastic grip and nickel finish.

      The second is an Astra-Unceta y Cia SA snub nose .38 Special 5 shot revolver. Blued steel finish.

      I am looking for information about how old they may be. Are they rare and/or of any value? I have no immediate intention of selling them as so far my collection has not included any revolvers. My grandpa never talked with me about them, so I am mostly looking to learn about their history.

      First off, great pics.

      The High Standard intrigues me. There might be some good value there.

      The Astra, not so much, as far as value goes.

      I can't help you out with any history and such, but you might just do some searching on the net.

      Good luck!

      Fund a good resource here for the Sentinel
      High Standard Sentinel

      Wow look at the finish on those! Any tips on getting mine to shine like that?
